OUR OWN SWEET WAY
Crayford Seller Dyne
(Rattle/Rhythmethod)


It's been fascinating watching the development of Rattle's jazz output over the last five years. 

The label has been quietly going about its business and now has a healthy catalogue of some of New Zealand's finest jazz musicians. 

Our Own Sweet Way is a trio outing featuring Jonathan Crayford, Roger Sellers and Paul Dyne, all of whom have made various appearances on other Rattle releases.

The album was hatched during a residency at the Havana Bar in Wellington and while they effortlessly stretch out in covering off some of the greats - Theolonius Monk, Dave Brubek, George Shearing - it's their intuitive moody interpretation of Wayne Shorter's Fall which is the centrepoint of an album that is tight at the core but elastic enough for some fine solos.
